Mrs. Knorpp is the most wonderful woman I've ever met in my life. She's shone me more love in my years with her at college park than my own mother has my whole life. She is so beautiful and the best person anyone could have the pleasure of knowing

For my sophomore and freshmen years, she was my favorite teacher. Very knowledgeable about english, writing, and journalism. Friendly. Her tests are easy, she is a bit of a tough grader when it comes to writing, but not too tough.

She is completely hilarious, and makes funny jokes all the time. Just don't get on her bad side, or else she will hate you for the rest of the year and do everything in her power to screw up your school life. Extremely easy class and she teaches themes of books well. I don't see the point of her spelling tests though - they are way too easy for high school students. Her projects take literally only 2 hours to get an A. Unless she hates you. Just do the homework and you'll definitely get an A .

Ms. Knorpp is one of my least favorite teachers at CP. She was very rude to me whenever I had any questions about the homework, and she clearly played favorites. Her mood was always changing; one minute she would be extremely happy, and the next she hated everything. I never knew what to expect from her.

She plays favorites! If she doesn't love you, you are screwed. She is also super disorganized, but expectes us to be perfect

EXTREMELY unorganized! You will not learn a single thing in this womans class and she is as immature as her students. I hope she retires soon to spare poor future sophomores.

Very moody, very critical of all work, though she was unspecific in her instruction, fine as a person, but not controlled enough in her personal opinions of students to teach unbiasedly.

Haha, I had Mrs. Knorpp years ago (for creative writing and soph english). Everything said about her is fairly true. Was was very moody, cried once when a few of us voiced our opinions on her cut and dry viewpoints. She does have "favorites," strangely based superficially (as I was a favorite, and I did not show her much attention, but she was turned on by our "shared" interests in film and lit). Overall she is a nice woman and the class is easy, I would not say it was very exciting though.

Mrs. Knorpp can be very moody, and is not clear at all in her directions (it is best to go above and beyond requirements). This has been my least favorite class EVER and I sincerely hope never to have her again as a teacher!

either knorpp loves you or hates you. if she hates you, you will hate her back. she's impatient with anyone she regards as talentless or unintelligent. when you take creative writing with her, it's not so you can explore it--it's because you love writing to death already. she can be a really sweet lady, not very popular though, but if you're lucky enough to be on her good side you'll learn a lot.

I'm in her creative writing class. Shes a nice person. She really tries to get you into writing, but the class is pretty boring and very slow paced. Shes nice to students and can actually joke around sometimes and is very passionate about what she teaches.

I like her as a person, but I hate her creative writing class. She knows nothing about theatre though is trying to help us write "plays". Not all writers can teach writing, as she has shown this year.
